Examination Regulations: govern the course and are taken from the overall University Examination Regulations, sometimes referred to as the 'Grey Book', which govern all academic matters within the University.
Examination Conventions: supplement the Examination Regulations. They explain in details how students will be assessed.
Course Handbook: for information on what is assessed, assessment criteria, role of Exam Board and Proctors, etc.
Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgment. This is also the case for your own previous work, which has been submitted towards this course or previous examinations. Your earlier work is citable, so you must reference clearly.
Under the regulations for examinations, intentional or reckless plagiarism is a disciplinary offence. When you submit your assignment or dissertation you will be required to confirm that the work is entirely your own, except where otherwise indicated, and that it has not been submitted either wholly or substantially for any other course.
Assignments and dissertations will be screened by Turnitin software, which will compare your work to a wide range of material and to the work of other candidates.
Students may be interested to read Examiners' Reports from previous years.
